NECI Court Hearing Adjourned Until 24th July


The NECI attended Cork Courthouse yesterday, Wednesday the 17th, for the interlocutory injunction hearing.

We were assigned to the court room of Justice Charles Meenan and the hearing commenced at 11am and concluded at 3.10pm. The hearing is now part heard and has been adjourned to the High Court in Dublin for Wednesday 24th.

The hearing is seeking an interlocutory injunction preventing a Sectoral Employment Order from becoming legally binding until the substantial hearing of the Judicial Review case has been determined.

The Sectoral Employment Order (SEO) in question would criminalise electrical contractors who do not pay the same conditions to their employees as much larger firms.

No decision has been issued.

An interlocutory injunction is a court order to compel or prevent a party from doing certain acts pending the final determination of case. It is an order made at an interim stage during the trial, and is usually issued to maintain the status quo until judgement can be made.

We will keep you updated on the progress of the case.

Thank you for your continued support. Keep spreading the word and we will ensure this SEO does not come to fruition.
